Today we're excited to get a little crafty and show you how we include prints inside our presentation folders. Grab your coffee (of course) and supplies and let's get started on this quick, 10 minute project!
1. Gather your supplies:
• pen or pencil
• ribbon (about 32 inches long)
• presentation folder
• scissors or X-Acto knife
• prints (our 5x7 example prints use the borders from our Vendor Marketing Kit)
2. Place your prints in the center of your presentation folder and make a mark on either side of the prints (centered between the top and bottom) the same height as the width of your ribbon (our ribbon is approximately 3/8 inch wide, so our marks reflect that).
6. Add any other items you'd like to your folder (in this case, we're using our Vendor Marketing Kit).
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
